PAGE TWENTY. THE CAIL.Y COURIER, CONNELLS\ ILLJD, PA. FRIDAY, MARCH 14, 1930. BUT CAMOUFLAGE Even Some of the Great Ocean Greyhound* Have Dummy Ones. London. -- Large numbers of funnels an* out of favor with ahlp builder*, but the public »tll! likes them. A ship la no more powerful because H has three or fonr funnels, hut It looks as It It was, nnd for tlint reason some ships have more funnels than they renlly use. That Isn't true of the new Empress of Britain, the Cnnndlun Pacific liner, *vhlch Is now building for transatlantic service. Her ftraceful rig pf three funnels anrJ Mvo masts Is a working arrangement. In other ships, 'hnugh, a third funnel Is apt to be n dummy. Among the few British built ships with three actual funnels w«ro th« famous City of Rome, City of New York, and City of Paris, built tn the '80s for the Md Inman line. But when the last two were transferred to the American lino n decade laten tliey each lost one fa nn el. · Dummy Funnels Added. The Anchor !1m hullt the three-funneled Columbia s u r l y In the present century, but In I n t e r boat* of the same i«slgJ* the number of funnels was re- tluoed to two. It was (his line also that started a litir of single funnel ·ships In order to takp advnntsige of HIP pxfra room nl lowed by eliminating the uptakes of the other funnels. But passengers didn't appreciate the extra room ami comfort allowed by this arrangement as much as thq looks of ·three funneK so two dummies were added, one on eich ship of the real funnel. The Oprmnni were more partial to ships with three funnels. Their imposing appearance was appreciated when some of them became part of the Russian naw and were used for service in the Far Kast, where they Jooked extreme!} powerful. Had Silhouette. The Olympic, for Instance, was one of the Gorman three-funnel ships. It has four funnels now, but one of them is a dummy. It was added because the position of the boiler rooms gave It a badly balanced silhouette with only three funnola. The Berengnrla, Leviathan and Majestic, originally built for the Ham- burg-Araerika line, may look like three-funnel ships, but as a matter of fact only two of them word. Knnuel , number three In each case Is a dummy added for the sake of appearance. Fortune in Silk Passes Through Seattle Port Seattle, Wash.--Nenrty $180.000.000 worth of silk for mllody's wardrobe passed through the port of Seattle during the last year. ' A silk train is a thing of romance. Hnge value, a million or so dollars, is In the cars behind the engine. A rlenr track and a bonus for extra speed to the Atlantic seaboard often Is the rule. Insurance and interest are Important factors. A total of 262 800 bales of silk, worth approximately $800 ench, was received In Seattle during the year, with Japan supplying roost of the product. Tn addition to the r6w silk the orient last year shipped $3,005,423 worth of finished silk articles through the port. Of that amount. China sent goods -valued at $343,988 and Japan, $3,561,435.
